PokerStars and Google Calendar

When PokerStars redid their tournament schedule my carefully-entered Google Calendar was all for naught. I really don't feel like entering tournament one by one again.

Google imports CSV files, which are easy enough to generate from the Stars spreadsheet. But there doesn't seem to be any way to specify recurring events. So I could import a week at a time, or copy events arbitrarily far in the future and then be in even worse shape when Stars changes things again.

Google also provides a Web API, including a Java library to talk to it. But that seems too much work at the moment. Perl would be about the right amount of effort...

...and, of course, there's a module in CPAN that will talk to Google Calendar. So maybe that's the way to go.

Or I could ask PokerStars support to do it. ;)
